Keiser Report: Social Media Surveillance Capitalism (E1125)

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the ‘turds’ ‘harvesting baby brains’ in the cryptocurrency markets, according to Charlie Munger, the 94-year-old billionaire, partner of Warren Buffett. Max and Stacy note that bitcoin was a direct response to the financial system created by the likes of Buffett and Munger so it makes sense that they would react more and more wildly against cryptocurrencies that mock their legacy. In the second half, Max continues his interview with Michael Krieger about social media surveillance capitalism and The Road to 2025.

Russia May Not Be As Strong As You Think

Historian Timothy Snyder, author of “The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America,” explains that Russia is not a powerful nation when measured in terms of traditional indicators like technological innovation or gross national product. Instead, Russia uses subjective measures like feelings to generate fear and distrust among its people and around the world.

————————————————–

Following is a transcript of the video:

Timothy Snyder: When we think about power, we often think about it in terms of traditional, twentieth century indices, like for example, gross national product or capacity for technological innovation. Russia’s definitely not a great power by either of those measures. So what the Russians try to do is to change the subject, change the rules of international competition away from those more objective things to more subjective things like feelings, like fear, like anxiety.

When we turn our own attention away from the real world, the three-dimensional world, and we pay more attention to the internet and to what feels good or bad to us, in effect, we’re making life easier for Russia. What they can mobilize very efficiently, very economically actually, are psychological resources over cyber. They choose that because it’s easy for them. They have a plan for the world. They have a plan for Europe. They have a plan for us. But, it’s not about imposing some kind of positive vision. It’s about bringing us back to where they are.

What President Putin does is he replaces domestic policy of which you can’t have any, with foreign policy. He can’t have domestic policy because he’s an oligarch at the head of an oligarchical clan, and he’s running a country which can’t have the rule of law. Hence, Russia is locked into place for the foreseeable future where it is. But, if he can convince Europeans and Americans that oligarchy is normal, that the rule of law is a joke, that democracy is fake, and so on, he can bring us to where Russia is. And if he can do that, then Russians will look around the world and say, “It’s all just a joke. Everything’s corrupt, everywhere. So, why don’t we just prefer our own corruption to other people’s corruption?”

So, this is a strategy. And, it’s at work; it’s what we’re up against, now. There’s a very important difference, I think, between a nationalism, which always turns you back on yourself, and a patriotism, which says, “I wanna hold my country up to a certain set of standards.” Nationalism will generally say, “We have always been innocent. “We are always the innocent victims.”

So, for example, if you’re Russia and you’re the biggest country in the world, nevertheless, you’ve somehow always been on the defensive. If you attack Ukraine, nevertheless, this is somehow a defensive rather than an offensive operation. Nationalism will say it’s always somebody else’s fault. The way it works politically is that you do things like this. You attack Ukraine. You support the far right in Europe. You support a presidential candidate in the United States. Eventually, there’s gonna be some kind of reaction. That reaction comes. Then, you say to your people, “Well yes, look, “this just proves that we were the victim. “We were always the victim.”

This New Winnebago Is The Ultimate Way To Save Space When On The Road

This is the Winnebago Revel and its a 4×4 off-road RV made for the wilderness.

Reefer Madness on the Road | Cannabis and Driving | Cannabis News Network

As (medical) cannabis legalization continues to roll out across the planet, governments have a hard time adapting to the idea of driving under the influence (DUI). And while driving under the influence should never be promoted, most governments sadly lack a basic understanding of how cannabis works. Patients are fined and losing their license, while recreational users can get positively tested days after using cannabis. Reefer Madness on the road.

Whereas governments tend to treat a cannabis DUI like an alcohol DUI, they should be treated separately for various reasons.

First and foremost should be looked whether cannabis really impairs driving. Of course, driving on cannabis after your first time consuming is never a good idea. But studies and experiments have shown cannabis use does not impair driving like alcohol does.

Physically, cannabis has been known to leave trails in your blood up to 30 days after consuming. However, you’re not going to feel high 20 days after consumption and neither will it impair your driving. As such, blood tests say very little about how impaired a driver really is.

Then, there’s the troubling case of patients whom can’t drive without cannabis. Or at least, have to consume cannabis to ensure a quality of life. Whether they are actually high while being tested, is irrelevant if they have consumed in the morning to alleviate nuisances.

Arguably the best source of cannabis and driving, the extensive study done by the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition (CDPC).

For this special on cannabis and driving, Cannabis News Network attended the the third international symposium on drug-impaired driving in Lisbon and got to speak with various experts, including: Doug Beirness (Canada, Senior Research & Policy Analyst and Advisor, Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction), Jan Ramaekers (The Netherlands, Professor of Psychopharmacology and Behavioral Toxicology, Maastricht University), Brendan Hughes (EU, EMCDDA, specialist narcotics law) and Darrin Grondel (USA, Governors Highway Safety Association GHSA).

‘The Road to Raqqa’: YPG fighters, medics & European volunteers on ISIS frontline (RT Documentary)

Watch more: https://rtd.rt.com/films/road-to-raqqa/

The road to ISIS’ self-proclaimed capital, Raqqa, has been long and hard. The battle rages in the suburbs of the Syrian city. Improvised explosive devices, suicide bombers, sniper fire and grenade-dropping drones have been deployed by the surrounded terrorists.
This film features the stories of fighters in the Kurdish People Protection Units (YPG), as well as European volunteers who joined them. There are also stories of military hospital staff. Dr. Akhiv, a veteran military doctor considers his work a “sacred calling.” Adham, a frontline nurse, joined the field hospital after his brother was killed fighting ISIS. Sema, a Kurdish female commander, left her family to join the fight. “We’re not fighting for a certain nation. Humanity is what we’re fighting for,” she says.
Some Europeans have joined the YPG as volunteers. Rosa left a mundane life in Sweden to fight for women’s rights in Syria. Robin, a volunteer from Germany, got sick of hearing how “someone should do something about” ISIS after every terrorist attack in Europe. He left his girlfriend and a comfortable life to do something about them himself.

Attacked by ISIS on the road to Mosul

With the mooted October deadline for the recapture of Mosul from the Islamic State rapidly approaching, Kurdish Peshmerga on Sunday launched an offensive to push closer to Mosul from the Iraq’s southeast, gaining control of another vital supply line.

VICE News traveled with the Peshmerga’s elite Zerevani division as they pushed north through IS-held countryside.

A Sniper In Iraq’s Golden Division Remembers His Fallen Comrade

In 2014, Islamic State militants swept into Western Iraq’s Anbar Province, overrunning Iraqi security forces, enslaving minorities, and causing thousands to flee for their lives.

The jihadist group captured Iraq’s largest city, Mosul, and the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah, where hundreds of US troops died fighting the Islamic State’s predecessor.

Now, two years later, the Iraqi security forces, with help from Iranian-supported Shiite militias and US military advisors and warplanes, are fighting to take back towns and cities in Anbar, one battle at a time.

But it’s a difficult task: Anbar has been the crucible of Iraq’s insurgency, and is the country’s Sunni heartland — long marginalized by and hostile to the Shiite-led government in Baghdad.

VICE News embedded with Iraq’s Golden Division Special Forces unit as they fought their way into the villages surrounding the city of Hit, where they encountered ambushes, sniper fire, and tried to sort suspected Islamic State operatives and sympathizers from innocent Iraqi civilians.

In this extra scene, a member of a sniper team VICE News met when embedded in Ramadi last year, tells us how he’s coping since losing his friend, who was considered the best sniper in the country.

The Struggle for Weapons on the Frontline (Extra Scene from ‘The Road To Mosul’)

Watch “Peshmerga vs. the Islamic State: The Road to Mosul (Full Length)” – http://bit.ly/1Kcm3uJ

A year after the Islamic State’s lightning conquest of Iraq’s second largest city of Mosul, the poorly-trained and equipped Kurdish peshmerga forces are the international coalition’s only reliable boots on the ground in northern Iraq.

The Pentagon’s hopes of recapturing the city by spring 2015 have been dashed by the military failures of the Iraqi Army further south, leaving the peshmerga to defend a 600-mile long frontline almost encircling Mosul, fending off constant Islamic State (IS) assaults with insufficient supplies of ammunition and modern weapons.

For one month, VICE News embedded with the peshmerga fighters on the Mosul frontline, gaining an insight into the coalition’s faltering war against IS through the eyes of the Kurdish volunteers bearing the brunt of the fighting.

In this extra scene, VICE News speaks with Masrour Bazrani, chancellor of the Kurdistan Security Council, about the disparity of weapons supplies that leaves Kurdish peshmerga forces vulnerable during their clashes with Islamic State militants.
